I spotted this child’s mitten in the dust on the floor of the school in Pripyat. I was really lucky to visit on a beautifully sunny and slightly windy day. The ‘gobo’ light effect came from the sun streaming through the trees growing high outside the school. I like the fact that the wool of the glove seems to form a loose heart shape, I only spotted this when I downloaded the footage onto my computer. The shot isn’t staged in any way and there has been no post processing. It makes me wonder if it’s been there for the full 25 years since the Chernobyl disaster.
